Brittany Cartwright: I Was Assaulted With Gum and I’m Pressing Charges!
Vanderpump Rules fans have watched Brittany Cartwright tolerate an astonishing amount of mistreatment over the years, mostly at the hands of her fiance, Jax Taylor.
Brit’s tolerance for abuse is the stuff of legend, but it seems that she’s less willing to turn the other cheek when the perpetrator is someone other than her douchebag husband-to-be.
Earlier this week, Brittany took to social media to share an account of an unfortunate incident that occurred while she and Jax were aboard a Delta flight from Atlanta to Miami on Sunday night.
According to Britanny, she ran afoul of a fellow passenger during an altercation over restroom etiquette.
Cartwright says the other passenger “started shaking my door a good 3 to 4 times [even though] I had already told her someone was in there.”
Brittany says that after she stepped out of the restroom, she showed the passenger “where it said occupied and vacant.”
No doubt she assumed the confrontation would end there.
However, it seems the mystery passenger had other plans for how to best resolve the conflict.
“Jax saw it all happen so of course we walk after her and say how dare you touch me, I did nothing but show you a sign,” Cartwright wrote.
“This kind of behavior is not acceptable and I will be pressing charges. This incident was a complete assault. I had to cut gum out of my hair.
“I did absolutely nothing to deserve this and I feel like a mean girl like this needs to be put in [her] place before she acts like this to someone else.”
Brittany tagged Delta in her tweets, and her co-stars have joined her in demanding that the airline take action to bring the perpetrator to justice.
“I hope Delta does the right thing,” Cartwright wrote.
“I will make sure this lady knows she can’t treat people this way. If this is what she will do at an AIRPORT (and get away with it), imagine what she is doing elsewhere?”
Delta may be able to assist authorities in determining the alleged assailant’s identity, but if the attack took place in the airport and not aboard a plane, the airline may determine that it’s outside of their jurisdiction and opt not to get involved at all.
Obviously, it’s an unfortunate situation, and Brittany has received a great deal of compassion from fans — but she’s also been subjected to a considerable amount of scrutiny.
For one, many have pointed out that perhaps the gum incident shouldn’t be her primary concern at the moment.
After all, Jax has cheated on her, lied to her, heaped verbal and emotional abuse on her and her friends, and displayed violent tendencies on a number of occasions — and she’s set to exchange vows with the man very soon.
On top of that, the incident has encouraged some fans to do some digging into Britanny’s past, which has led to allegations that she lied about having never seen an episode of Vanderpump before meeting Jax.
In fact, insiders allege that Brit was such a fan of the show that she celebrated her birthday at SUR several years ago, before she’d even met Jax.
None of this is to say that Brit deserved to have gum smushed into her hair, and we applaud her efforts to track down the culprit.
Unfortunately, it seems those efforts may have resulted in some unwanted attention.
